Fiery Moment With Jessica: Single & Smiling (Part 3)

Dear reader it’s great to have you back this week hope you enjoyed our previous edition? This week, we would be discussing the continuation of last week’s topic that presented the man as the alpha and omega so prescribed by the Nigerian culture. 

Now let’s do a sharp contrast; in the western world, you do not need to be sure if it is love or lust, just feel the heartbeat, experience the butterfly effect express it, whether it’s the male or the female that comes out first, it doesn’t matter as against the African culture where it is the man’s place to do the approaching.

The next event on the way is throwing a surprise engagement party pop the question, she puts on the ring, the court registry is visited, the process is legalised and the day he’s caught cheating on his wife, he is relegated to the couch while she takes the bed room, the day either of them gets tired of the union, whether the man or the woman wants out, the man looses the house and half his possession especially monetary after which he still requires her consent to properly dissolve the Union and agree on child support in the case of a blessed marriage.

However it happens in the western world, the lady has got nothing to lose and if she decides to remain single, it’s nobody’s business; they as a matter of fact have support groups for this category of persons. In this part of the world it’s not corporate responsibility to be married.

Sisters, which do you prefer? A culture that sets the rules for you and makes the man a lord over and above you or a society where the man raises to his feet when a woman walks into his midst?In the west world, it is a woman’s world.

Now the question is, do this people really possess a moral code of conduct other than the crave for equality between the man and the woman? Or is there a possibility that we are operating on the primitive side of the social divide.  Because I am trying so much to strike a balance between our crude culture and the ethics in the western world that propagates equality.

Because I can’t over emphasise the effects of broken homes on children, so what’s ethical about divorce? Now that you’ve seen what’s possible on both sides of the divide I’m certain all realists would have made their choice, but I can assure that on either side of the divide, somebody has to lose.

To be Cont’d …
